She stole thousands of dollars and is not in jail??? Something is definitely wrong with this. If someone gies into a bank, store or whatever and steals thousands of dollars, you can bet your a$$, they would be sitting in jail right now.

The article says she is accused. She will appear at a later date. If convicted you go to jail, almost anybody is free on bail till their hearing.

Bank robbers are accused too, but are sent to jail to await trial.

Agree. Seems like the public servants are committing the same crime.

Where has it been said the investigation is over? Where did it say there would be no more charges? You all seem to know the law, why don't you go volunteer your services?

In order to protect our tax dollars, the fucking laws have to change so that these scumbags know that they are going to have a bail set commensurate with the crime(s). With these felonies for what she did, she should be putting up at least fifteen thousand cash for bail.

No gots ---- no daylight. She can stay in there until her trial.

I have no tolerance for people who victimize people or society as a whole.

ok skinnyminny, strike a nerve did we? Let me find out that your probably the one who got in trouble for frauding the system and if your not, you are a man or a woman that is. I gather this from the fact that not only are you too lazy to work, you are too lazy to type a whole word. Jack ass :)~

No one will ever understand the welfare system anyway!! Lorie Sportello (used to live in Herkimer, now Ilion) has been on the welfare system for years She worked under the table a few times for local bars, getting fired from each job. The system said they canít prove she works & gets paid for it. They know she does it, but it canít be proven!!She had her car repoíed, then she was kicked out of the projects in Herkimer. So she went to live with her daddy, he claimed she was paying him rent so she could get enough cash assistance to save for a car & put it on the road, then she continued to save her welfare checks until she had enough money to move in an apartment, 1st monthís rent & security. She returned the favor to daddy for lying on the paperwork, to social services, by sharing her $586.00 in foodstamps with him until she could get back on her feet. Welfare canít prove that she wasnít giving her father rent money. This kind of thing happens all the time & thereís no way to prove it when these dirtbags beat the system.
